Professional sports teams have long eyed LED lighting for their baseball venues and courts because of the potential energy savings and the high electricity costs associated with lighting playing venues.
Early on, however, LEDs proved too costly for such applications and also could not match the quality of legacy high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. Ironically, LEDs are now thought to provides superior light quality and that fact often trumps energy costs as the reason that teams move to SSL.
New baseball field lighting creates a brilliant experience for fans, TV viewers, and players on the field at the Kansas City Royals’ Kauffman Stadium (top) and the Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey in Mexico (bottom).
The new projects for the 2018 season all use Musco’s TLC for LED (Total Light Control) systems. “All of these organizations had very clear goals and were focused on transforming the stadium experience for players and fans,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president at Musco Lighting. “We worked closely with them to achieve that goal. When you see the stage these lights help create for night games at these stadiums, it’s pretty special, and the fans will love it.”
The LED systems deliver light more precisely than legacy HID systems. That means light is only directed where it is needed and energy isn’t wasted delivering light where it’s not needed. Moreover, the beam control results in better uniformity and that benefits players and fans.
Our baseball field lighting is similar to Musco’s lighting, but it is cheaper than Musco’s. If you want a free quote, please write to me: email@example.com
